## Roadmap
This is not exactly a formal roadmap but it is a priority list of what might be implemented in future releases.
This list is volatile.
This list is volatile and may not reflect what will be in the next release.
### TODO (high priority)
* Eclipse: create plugin to enumerate repositories and delegate cloning to EGit
* Manager: support federation RPCs
* Manager: redesign ref indicators in log, search, and activity views to support multiple local branches, remote branches, and tags
### TODO (medium priority)
* Gitblit: editable settings page in GO/WAR
* Gitblit: Clone Repository feature (issue 5)
* Integrate an SSH daemon to complete the transport trifecta: http/https, git, and ssh
* GitHub-style Pull Requests or Gerrit-style Patchsets (issue 215)
* Clone/Mirror Repository feature (issue 5)
* optional scheduled pulls
* optional automatic push to origin/remotes?
* optional manual push to origin/remotes?
* Gitblit: Repository regex substitutions should be stored in .git/.config, not gitblit.properties
### IDEAS
* Gitblit: GitHub-style Pull Requests or Gerrit-style Patchsets
* Gitblit: Re-use the EGit branch visualization table cell renderer as some sort of servlet
* Gitblit: diff should highlight inserted/removed fragment compared to original line
* Gitblit: respect Gerrit branch permissions
* Gitblit: Consider creating more Git model objects and exposing them via the JSON RPC interface to allow inspection/retrieval of Git commits, Git trees, etc from Gitblit.
* Gitblit: Blame coloring by author (issue 2)
* Re-use the EGit branch visualization table cell renderer as some sort of servlet (issue 194)
* Diff should highlight inserted/removed fragment compared to original line
* Respect Gerrit branch permissions, if found (issue 36)
* Repository regex substitutions should be stored in .git/.config, not gitblit.properties
* Editable settings page in GO/WAR
* Create Eclipse plugin to enumerate repositories and delegate cloning to EGit

### Windows Authentication
Windows authentication is based on the use of Waffle and JNA. It is known to work properly for authenticating against the local Windows machine, but it is unclear if it works properly with a domain controller and Active Directory. To use this service, your Gitblit server must be installed on a Windows machine.

### Redmine Authentication
You may authenticate your users against a Redmine installation as long as your Redmine install has properly enabled [API authentication](http://www.redmine.org/projects/redmine/wiki/Rest_Api#Authentication). This user service only supports user authentication; it does not support team creation based on Redmine groups. Redmine administrators will also be Gitblit administrators.
realm.userService = com.gitblit.RedmineUserService
realm.redmine.url = http://example.com/redmine
### Salesforce.com Authentication
You may authenticate your users against Salesforce.com. You can require that user's belong to a particular organization by specifying a non-zero organization id.
realm.userService = com.gitblit.SalesforceUserService
realm.salesforce.orgId = 0
### Container Authentication
If you are using the WAR variant and deploying into your own servlet container which has a pre-defined authentication mechanism protecting the Gitblit webapp, then you may instruct Gitblit to automatically create Gitblit accounts for container-authenticated user principals.
realm.container.autoCreateAccounts = true
## Custom Authentication
This is the simplest choice where you implement custom authentication and delegate all other standard user and team operations to one of Gitblit's user service implementations. This choice insulates your customization from changes in User and Team model classes and additional API that may be added to IUserService.

### Controlling Advertised Repository URLs
In some reverse-proxy configurations you may be running Gitblit using an http interface with an https reverse-proxy proxy. This will lead to Gitblit generating incorrect repository urls.

## Gitblit as a Viewer
Gitblit is designed to be a complete Git server solution, however you may already have a Git serving solution such as ssh+gitolite or Gerrit. For these scenarios, you may configure Gitblit to be just a repository viewer.
### Lock-down your Viewer
Here is an example configuration that disables all administration, all Git serving features, and requires an authenticated user to view anything.
git.repositoriesFolder = ${baseFolder}/git
git.cacheRepositoryList = true
git.searchRepositoriesSubfolders = true
git.searchRecursionDepth = -1
git.searchExclusions =
git.daemonPort = 0
git.enableGitServlet = false
git.enableGarbageCollection = false
git.defaultAccessRestriction = VIEW
web.authenticateViewPages = true
web.allowAdministration = false
web.enableRpcServlet = false
web.enableRpcManagement = false
web.enableRpcAdministration = false
web.allowForking = false
### Tomcat or Reverse-Proxy Servers
If you are running Gitblit on a Tomcat-based container you will likely run into forward-slash character troubles.
To resolve this either set:
web.mountParameters = false
or
web.forwardSlashCharacter = !
### Advertised Repository Urls
You may also want to advertise repository urls for your other Git serving solution from Gitblit.
- *{0}* is the token for the repository name
- *{1}* is the token for the username
The username is only practical if you have setup the account names for your other git serving solution to match the Gitblit account.
web.otherUrls = ssh://localhost/git/{0} git://localhost:29418/git/{0} https://{1}@localhost/r/{0}
